Notre Dame is proud to announce the launch of the Latino Studies Scholars Program (LSSP). The merit-based scholarship and accompanying curriculum for undergraduate students is designed to attract and shape leaders working to support and empower Latino communities.
The scholarship was created by the Institute for Latino Studies (ILS) as part of its mission to advance the understanding of the fastest growing and youngest population in the United States and the Catholic Church. ILS strengthens Notre Dame’s mission to prepare transformative leaders in education, the professions, the arts, economic and civic participation, faith, and family life among Latinos and all members of our society.
Scholars are awarded $25,000 per year for four years of undergraduate study at Notre Dame, along with up to $5,000 per summer for three summers to fund enrichment activities such as internships, conferences, and study abroad.
